TMZ Live: Michelle's Junk Food Binge - Bad Example?

7/12/2011 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle Obama wants a healthier America -- then chows down on a greasy, 1,700 calorie meal for all to see. Bad example ... or is she allowed to slip every now and then?

And, the guy who caught Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit gave the ball back ... and now his unselfishness may come back to bite him in the ass. Did he do the right thing?

Re Marriage:
My take on this is that it's none of the government's business who I choose to marry. I think civil weddings of straight couples shouldn't even exist. Civil partnerships I can agree with and that shouldn't be a restricted to the kind of union or the amount of people involved. Go ahead and be united with your turtle, if you want to, just have the turtle pay its taxes. Marriage, for the most part is a spiritual ceremony of union and can be freely exercised by those who wish to in accordance to their beliefs.

i think if gay marriage is legal a brother should be able to marry his sister as well..i mean after all who are we to tell someone that they cant marry the person they love..thats what the gays say.

The fact that alcohol is legal and marijuana is not is ridiculous. Alcohol probably kills more people than marijuana. I don't think either should be legal but if i had to choose one it would be marijuana hands down.

Polygamy should be legal too. If a person wants to marry multiple people and the partners are aware of the polygamy then it should be legal as should gay marriage. If two same sex people want to marry and people allow it then why is polygamy worse. My guess is because it is not widely practiced and there have been "cults" in the past that practiced polygamy and child marriage.

I think that Octomom is a fool for having soooo many kids, but I have to say I lost some respect for Harvey yesterday over the airplane argument. I agree with Charles, it was very elitist of you Harvey. Also, lets give credit where credit is due, show me a picture of Octomom with a crack pipe while someone else is caring for her kids (Brook Sheen, Whitney Houston...) then we can talk.

Can't he deduct the appraised value of the item on his taxes?

I honestly think that Jeter is also so concerned about his image, he would step in and voluntarily PAY the tax for the guy, rather than face the public having to state that he received his milestone item and someone had to PAY for the privilege of giving it to him.

Does Cap'n Jetes have to claim the appraised value as income on his taxes?

Either Derek Jeeter or the Yankees should pay the taxes it will be the best PR move vs having the fan pay, which is a bad PR move.

When Evan was on the Price is Right, he won a prize and had to pay taxes. The Yankees gave the gentleman a gift for returning the baseball. Doesn't the gift giver pay the gift taxes?

Geez you guys - give a person a break! The secret to healthy eating for 'real human beings' is that you will not stick to a healthy eating program if you can never have anything in the higher carb/fat range. That's just a fact of life with real human beings. Fast food is often considered 'sometimes' foods, to be eaten sparingly. They are not 'everyday' foods. Michelle Obama was just indulging in a 'sometimes' meal - she is human after all!!
